What's Your Favorite Scary Movie?

Image Not Found

YOU ARE GOING TO DIE! While that statement is universally true (you will die at some point, not me, Bill Compton is my alternate personality), some people may edge closer if the Pig virus has anything to do with it. According to a report issued by the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Tech (PCAST), more than half of the US may catch the swine flu, aka H1N1, this fall and winter.

I know what you're thinking, avid FOX News watcher, and the answer is yes. Yes, this does seem like scare tactics to help Obama push through health care reform (which is headed nowhere according to Sen. Feingold) but less we forget, we've been blatantly lied to more times than I can count the past 8 years. Which would you choose: lies got us into 2 useless wars and built our deficit to astronomical numbers OR lies that would get A LOT of people insured while driving insurance cost down? Hmmmm, no brainer.

Speaking of the health care debate, did you see Jon Steward ROAST Betsy McCaughey's flimsy arguments and misinformation last week? WATCH HERE!

Lastly on health, good news for everyone who rocks the Professor Farnsworth glasses, scientist have created eye cells from stem cells. Will this disrupt weed for glaucoma treatments? That remains to be seen but hopefully, the stickiest of the icky will be legalized anyway soon.

Confirmed: Mike Vick will make his debut Thursday against the Jacksonville Jaguars making this the first time we see the Monovon VickNabb ((c) Goldyn Child) in action. Coach Reid has said, "Look for him sooner rather than later," and don't expect him in the 4th quarter. How he will be used remains to be seen but expect to see him toss the dog pig-skin at least once.

Getting my sports center on, in Baseball news (as Goldyn Child cringes), NY Met's Johan Santana will be out for the season with Herr's bone chips in his elbow. Another blow to the already expected to fail Mets. How dire is the situation there? Santana (no Carlos) is the 12th Met to join the disabled list. Ouch. (pun intended).

Well, today seems to be a bad day to be a Santana as Juelz Santana was arrested this morning for threatening to kill his baby mom's and domestic violence. Juelz was quoted as yell at her to, "Sit in the car! And don't touch nothin, sit in the car!"

Oh and O'Rly has responded to Jay-Z. Would somebody please rip out this dude's endocrine system please?

C-Murder caught another 10 years. So if he somehow serves his life sentence completely, he'll still have 10 more years to go. Overkill? TRU.

I do love it when my two loves hip-hop and video games unite. It's either REALLY bad (Wu-Tang Shaolin anyone?), REALLY good (DJ Hero & Scratch) or just hilarious (50 Cent's Blood On The Sand), but check this out: Pacific Division (aka PacDiv) dropped their flash game Church League Champions: The Game today. Play as Mibbs, Like or BeYoung and try to hit as many 3's or free throws as possible. Nice.

Check out this pack of web programming car stickers for when you just have to let people know how much of a geek you are. Shout out to .NET tho, that's my jammie.

If you haven't watched the two Halo: ODST ViDocs yet, you are definitely playin yaself (c) Jeru. Check out Desperate Measures and Bip. Bap. Bam. NOW! If those two don't get you pumped you are probably a jock with a stupid face who dates the best looking cheerleader who I tried to get with and couldn't because I didn't have a car and didn't have money and wasn't popular and was nervous because she was so pretty that I almost fainted; But if they do get you pumped, pre-order H:ODST at Amazon to receive a $5 mp3 credit, $15 towards a future video game purchase and an unlock code to play Sgt. Johnson [||] in Firefight mode.

Just as quickly The Pirate Bay disappeared, it reappeared and ready to fight. Avast TPB! Man the cannons, raise the flag and prepare to swashbuckle until we can't swashbuckle no more!

Loot & Plunder

Brett Favre is back...again. This time he's re-untiring and officially joining the Vikings. Not only does he get to skirt training camp and some of the pre-season, but he's pretty much guaranteed the starting spot over a better QB (IMO) Tarvaris Jackson AND a guy the Vikings traded for in Sage Rosenfels. Wack move if you ask me, but I'ma let Chris Carter tell it.

Side note: Madden heads, Vick as an Eagle and Favre as a Viking will be included in 8/19's Madden Roster update for Madden '10.

"Mr President, I can't tell if you're a Jedi who's always 10 steps ahead, or if this health care issue is kicking his ass just a little bit," (c) John Steward (Watch). After a town hall in CO (no Rick Ross) where PrObama stated, "Whether we have the public option or not, is not the entirety of health care reform," Democrats and the left wing in general have been putting on pressure to keep the public option alive.

Slaughterhouse put up 22,255 albums sold in their first week. That's beating Eminem AND it's better than Fab's first week. It's a low number BUT with Fab receiving a single with Jay-Z, a single with The-Dream and a remix to that single AND a major label push, it's not that bad.

[Nerd News]

Slaugust 11th

Ok, let me take a few minutes to stop roasting Ace Hood on twitter (@cthecatalyst for the hilarity) to give yous guys some freshness.

For some reason, people are "scared of Obama" (who's still the only President who still constantly never gets "President" in front of his name) for pushing his healthcare reform. He keeps trying to swat the ignance away but like reality shows or Soulja Boy, it just won't go away. People, we need healthcare reform, get over it.

@cthecatalyst #uknowuacehood when the only people who bought your last album was you and you in a Groucho mask

Tonight there's expected to be an awesome meteor shower. The annual Perseid meteor shower is expected to grace our continent between midnight and 5 am (EST). If the weather permits, you really should take your kids out and show them there's more to this world than TV and games.

@cthecatalyst #uknowuacehood when the only people who bought your last album was you and you in a Groucho mask when you sign up on twitter as "AceHood" but then sign up again as "TheRealAceHood" to get twice the followers

Today was a great day in hip-hop as Slaughterhouse's album finally went on sale. If you are one of those who continue to bash hip-hop saying "its dead", and "there's nothing good", but yet won't buy this album; you need to Final Destination yourself.

@cthecatalyst #uknowuacehood when DJ Khaled has you in his phone as "DO NOT ANSWER"

Some crazy lady decided to throw a mug at Mona Lisa, Leonardo Di Vinci's (of Di Vinci Code fame) master piece. Turns out she was literally out of her mind as she was placed in a French psychiatric unit.

@cthecatalyst #uknowuacehood when you make a FML about this trending topic and everybody votes "you totally deserved it"

Apparently Kid Cudi was nominated for a Teen Choice award. I will not juxtapose that with a "I Poke Her Face" joke...

@cthecatalyst #uknowuacehood when iTunes list "wrist slitting knives" and "poisoned kool aid" as things "Listeners Also Bought"

The new Xbox 360 dashboard update is now live. As a reminder, you'll be receiving better Netflix functionality, Games On Demand, Avatar rewards and more. Download now.

Keeping on Microsoft, Amazon let loose info Zune HD pricing. A 16 GB player will cost you $219.99 and a 32 GB model of sexiness will run you $289.99, which is $10 less than the current 16 GB iPod Touch. Ouch. It's rumored to be hitting the streets on September 8th. I'd cop if I didn't need a ridiculous amount of hard drive space (currently under 100 mb on my 80 gb iPod Classic).

Feast your eyes on what is sure to be my next PDA, the AT&T Tilt 2 bka HTC Touch Pro2 (aka HTC Rhodium). It's just a matter of time. Of course the TP2 runs Windows Mobile so I guess that's also MFST related.

Ending my Microsoft nerd news love fest, it seems tomorrow (8/12) Microsoft and Nokia will announce an alliance. UUWWWWHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT? (c) Chris Griffin. Well the latest leaked news is that Microsoft is only working on a version of Mobile Office for Nokia phones. zzzzzz

Release Dates:
Games: Madden NFL '10 (X360, PS3, Wii, PSP); Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 (PSN)
DVDs: I Love You Man w/ Paul Rudd, Jason Segel and Rashida Jones (who may just become my mistress); 17 Again w/ Zac Effron & Matthew Perry
Music: Slaughterhouse - Slaughterhouse (GO BUY THIS NOW!); Joe Budden - Escape Route (Digital Only); Jessie James - Jessie James;

It's late but I still got it in [||]. Check me out on twitter @cthecatalyst.

Hot Shit: Slaughterhouse in stores now, my new tattoo, President Obama
Not Shit: Ignorant people who love to stay ignorant. We need to start a "Leave The Country" campaign for these people who don't like Pres. Obama.

Your favorite pre-PrObama president and mine, Bill Clinton, convinced North Korea to free those 2 US journalist. Ole Slick Willie put the moves on Kim Jong Il and poof, special pardons for all. I think Jong Il even wanted to pardon Chi Ali until Bill reminded him he was US prisoner.

No this is not important news but it should be near the top. There is now a Snuggie for dogs. Human civilization FAIL.

Do you know what else is NOT (allthats)fresh? Short shorts for men. REALLY?! (c) Seth & Amy.

If you happen to have Showtime and you have not been watching Penn & Teller: BULLSHIT! this season then you seriously need to reconsider your TV watching expertise. Last week's episode was an awesome one about organic food. In this summer when there seems to be absolutely nothing to watch (no Mr. LebronJamesBond, I will not watch Obsessed with green eggs & ham), there's always the premiums.

Keri Hilson on the cover of Complex? That was simple.

The cover artwork & (rumored) tracklisting for Jay-Z's 'Blueprint 3' was released online yesterday. From the looks of it, it might be headed for Snoozeville, population: me. Although Kanye doing most of the production may be a good look, no Just Blaze beats is certainly not. Along with his yawn worthy performance on "Run This Town" where Kanye showed him up and "Death Of The Autotune" seemingly losing some steam, it'll be interesting to see how this turns out.

Speaking of slept on albums, literally, shout out to Fab for dropping this new Ambien in the form of a CD 'Loso's Way'. Mr. John Jackson seriously sounds like he doesn't want to rap anymore. Remember when Joe Budden was his sidekick and you were waiting for new Clue tapes to hear Fab rip the latest instrumental? Yea, those days are LONG gone. Word to Lil Mo.

DeAndre Way? Nah, won't even waste my time or links.

I'll toss the nerd news alley oop to the Goldyn Child

Release Dates:
Games: G.I. Joe: Rise Of Cobra (All); SingStar Queen (PS3); Daisy Fuentes Pilates (Wii)
Music: Poison Pen - The Money Shot
DVDs: The Soloist w/ Jamie Foxx & Robert Downey Jr; Obsessed w/ Beyonce, Idris Elba & Ali Larter; Race To Witch Mountain w/ The Rock

The dog days of summer are here. Hit me up on twitter @cthecatalyst

Hot Shit: Penn & Teller Bullshit, Finding lower insurance and the upcoming ATF interview with Ab
Not Shit: Snuggies for dogs, Short shorts for men and ignorant minds for the GOP
